VIJAYAWADA: At a public meeting in Narasaraopeta on Thursday, BJP national president Amit Shah declared that the doors of the National Democratic Alliance were permanently shut for AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.
Turning his guns on the development projects, Mr Shah said despite the full cooperation and liberal assistance provided by the centre for the construction of Amaravati and major irrigation project Polavaram, they have not been completed. He accused Mr Naidu of huge corruption in these projects and said he must be ousted if the two projects are to be completed.
Describing the “opportunism” of Mr Naidu, the BJP chief said Mr Naidu quit the Congress in 1983 and joined the TD founded by N.T. Rama Rao. “In 1995 he back-stabbed his own father-in-law NTR and usurped the party. In 1999, he joined hands with the NDA government headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and when the NDA lost power in 2004, the TD chief deserted it, which clearly explains the opportunism of Naidu.” This “opportunist Naidu” recently allied with the Congress in the Telangana Assembly election but after losing the election he snapped ties with the Congress and refused to have an alliance with the Congress in the AP elections.
Of Mr Naidu’s efforts to form an opposition alliance at the national level, Mr Shah alleged that the opposition alliance has no leader, no principles, no philosophy, no identity and no values....
